Subject: Something has gone wrong - was there a power outage? 

I came into the 40m a few minutes ago, and noticed the following (approximately in this order):

  • The striptool plots projected onto the wall were gone, even though the projector seemed to be working fine
  • There was no light at all in the IFO 
  • There was an incessnt beeping noise coming from inside the lab.

To investigate further, I checked today's summary pages, and whatever caused this, happened around 730am today morning (approx 5 hours ago). I also saw that all the watchdogs were tripped, except MC3, BS and SRM. 

I then tracked down the beeping - I believe that it is coming from Megatron.(in fact, it is coming from the Jetstor..) 

I also found that the PSL is OFF, and the Marconi, though ON, has the display parameters set to values that I normally see when it is first turned ON (i.e. the carrier frequency is 1200MHz, the output is -140dBm etc - this is what led me to suspect that somehow the power connection was interrupted? As far as the workstation computers are concerned, I don't think ROSSA was affected, but pianosa is frozen and donatella is at the login screen. The CDS overview MEDM screen refuses to load correctly (though some of the other MEDM screens are working fine). I'm not entirely sure how to go about fixing all of this, so for now, I'm leaving the PSL off and I've shutdown the remaining watchdogs.

It just occurred to me to check the status of the vacuum - the MEDM screen seems to suggest everything is fine (see Attachment #1). I went down to the X end to do a quick check on the status of the turbo pumps and everything looks normal there...
